I'll just add this: I know of few if any versions where each change of theme, each spontaneous arpeggio to spill forth from Garcia's brain, is so quickly and eagerly embraced by all members of the band. I'm stunned every time I hear it.

The balls to the wall energy cannot be exceeded by 12/29/68, as elb alludes; as for "tightness", I dunno...I do know that 2/11/69 has the TIGHTEST 11 though.

Don't you think 02/12/69 has that honor?

2/12/69 is my favorite perfomance of The Eleven, though I cannot imagine how it could be mistaken for a tight rendition...

How so? By 'tight' do we mean 'concise'? Even then, there's little rambling involved, aside from the intro jam which still seems pretty sharp and focused to me.

How so?

Garcia has broken a string. He's absent for nearly 3/4 of the song. Weir slashes leads admirably, making for a blistering hot and unique rendition. But it's certainly not even close to tight playing...

Something must be said about the disparity between the length of the two - 2/12/69's version is nearly 2x the time of the previous night's. I can't get enough of the tune, hence, may be a bit biased towards the longer version. Of course, there really are no less than stellar versions of this song.
